Eclipse and CVS

Post by Dave Edwards » Fri Sep 06, 2002 3:49 pm

Hi!

I'm trying to use the team features of eclipse. I've been running an NT
based CVS server for a while now and connecting to it via cvs on RTP6.1

I've tried to do the same with Eclipse, except that when I try to check
modules back into the repository (using synch followed up release) the
system reports an error and does not show the files in the repository.

I can check out modules fine, just can't modify and resubmit.

Help!

Hello Dave,

I had the same Problem with an CVSNT-Server. If you are using this
CVS-Server-Software the following entry of the Eclipse FAQ is
interesting for you:

"Why isn't CVSNT supported? The reason CVSNT isn't supported is
because traditionally its development effort has been smaller and has
lagged behind that of CVS Linux, thus its quality tends to be of
issue. Our experience is that every new version of CVSNT has subtle
bugs which are specific to it, while as CVS Linux has been
comparatively and consistently solid. We fix CVSNT bugs where time
permits but we don't include it in our test passes for reasons
above. In general those who are 'serious' about it choose CVS Linux
for reliability (eg. eclipse.org), which at that scale (e.g. corporate
code storage) warrants a dedicated machine anyway with an
appropriately chosen OS. If the community feels that a greater CVSNT
effort is warranted, then this would be an excellent avenue for
community contribution."


bye,
OK.
